Empowering Futures: Completion of a New School in Guinea-Bissau - In memory of Sr. Amadeu, Sra. Marcelina Faria and Joshua Faria Teixeira




Introduction: We are thrilled to announce the completion of our latest project in Guinea-Bissau: the construction of a brand new school for 320 students. This endeavor represents not only bricks and mortar but the building blocks of a brighter future for the local community. Through the dedication of our team and the generosity of Armah Consultants, we have transformed a vision into a reality.


Project Background: This school in the village near Nhacra, an hour away from Bissau, had been completely destroyed by the heavy rains. The teachers had moved the desks and teaching of some students to under the mango trees. Other older students had to walk 14 km to study instead and the youngest had no school at all. What they desperately needed was a new building with solid floor, walls and roof to hold the classes.


Building Dreams, One Brick at a Time: In a region where educational infrastructure is very much lacking, this new school stands as a beacon of hope. From its sturdy foundation to its 4 rooms, 3 toilets, school garden and well, every aspect of the building has been carefully crafted to provide a safe and conducive learning environment for the children of this village near Nhacra, Guinea-Bissau.


Empowering the Community: Our impact extends far beyond the walls of the school. By providing access to quality education, we are empowering generations to come. Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, and this school will serve as a catalyst for change in the community.


Celebrating Success: As we celebrate the completion of this project, we also celebrate the countless lives that will be transformed. From the eager faces of students to the proud smiles of regional directors, the ripple effects of this endeavor will be felt for many years to come.


Gratitude and Acknowledgment: None of this would have been possible without the unwavering support of Armah Consultants - Chris and Brigida. Your generosity has made a tangible difference in so many of the lives of those in need, and for that, we are eternally grateful.
